Obituary

LEMELIN, Emily Janelle (nee Matter)


On January 29, 2020, peacefully and surrounded in love, the Lord called Emily home at the age of 32.

Beloved wife of Alexandre Lemelin. Born the youngest daughter of Luke and Hennie (Kikkert) Matter in Burlington. She grew up together with her brothers Peter (Shannon), Kyle (Melisa) and her sister Elissa (Sean). She enjoyed swimming daily in the family pool, being outside and playing many sports. Emily developed a passion for hockey playing in Flamborough, continuing at Pearson highschool, and Nipissing University. Through coaching girls hockey she was able to pass on her love for the game. Emily was actively involved with her nephews and niece Lucas, Ava, Jackson, Eli, Cohen, Max, Elijah, Lucas, and Finley.

Emily married Alexandre in September 2018, sharing the same faith, values, goals, and interests. They enjoyed being together whether at home, hiking or out on the water kayaking. Emily quickly became the loved daughter-in-law of Jacques and Anne.

Emily was a dedicated teacher with a passion for others. She began teaching overseas, and then for the Halton school board. Emily grew up going to Bethel CRC. She recently attended Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church.

Family and friends will remember Emily as a fun, outgoing, caring and strong person. She will be deeply missed.

This is a true sorrow. Emily was an inspiration to those she surrounded herself with. I had coached Emily for a number of years as part of the Nipissing University Women's Hockey team. She was one of the hardest working players i had the privilege to coach.
Emily will be truly missed.

I am deeply saddened to hear about Emily. We were in the YWCA Encore group together. I did not know her well, but I was struck by her beauty and strength. When we were asked to show a photo on our phone of something that made us happy, I remember Emily proudly showing us a photo of her and her husband on their wedding day. The last time I saw Emily, she was struggling with radiation but almost done. I truly believe she is at peace now and not having to deal with this terrible disease that took her much to early. My heart goes out to her family and friends. xo Kelly Drennan

I am so saddened to read about Emily's passing. I have so many fond memories. I really wish we had stayed in better touch after I moved away. I would be there today if there was any way. Emily, may your soul rest in peace and may your family and friends find comfort in knowing you will still surround them but are no longer suffering.
